Well, the NFL is all set to kick off in 29 days. Thursday night September 10 is the official kickoff to the 2020 season, pitting the Houston Morons vs the Kansas City Chiefs. Should be a good one that Houston will lose. We of course play the beneficiaries of Bill O’Brien’s utter stupidity in the Arizona Cardinals. They of course traded DeAndre Hopkins for a washed up David Johnson. They also jettisoned Carlos Hyde, who had a pretty solid year for the Houstons. So, they traded arguably one of the top 3 WRs in the league for a lousy replacement to a better RB in Hyde, and got a 2nd round pick.
So, we have a very tough opening game, at home at least, against what looks to be a very improved Cardinals team. One that we, and many other teams, struggled to beat last year, despite their 5-10-1 record. That is of course pending the Coronavirus threat hanging over everything and everyone. Baseball has a bunch of teams on hold while the players do stupid shit like going to strip clubs and such in insanely stupid states like Georgia, but they are playing on.
Basketbubble is going just fine as no players so far have broken the bubble (take the bottle, shake it up. Break the bubble, break it uuuuup. Pour some . . .). Football? Well, there have been 59 cases with players, and 2 dozen or so coaches and staff, but nothing recently. Anthony Lynn admitted he tested positive a while ago, and 66 players have opted out.
This includes 49er O linemen Jake Brendel and Shon Coleman, and WR Travis Benjamin; for various reasons. So, as of now it is all systems go, and the league office said there is a very slim chance that things will get bad enough to warrant a cancellation of the season. But as we have seen so far, this can change on a dime.
